chair paul ryan may be close to just such an agreement. i think that's very good news because we need a budget deal so we can put an end to the manufactured crises that have hurt too many families and businesses in 23456r7 and across this country. i know that i speak for many of us here in the senate when i say that our primary focus really should be on continuing to put in place an environment that creates jobs, that lays a foundation for economic growth, and that's one of the things that getting a budget deal would help do. we've recently seen some signs of progress in the economy, the jobs report on friday was positive with over 200,000 private-sector jobs added in november, and we've now had 45 straight months of private-sector job growth. but we all know that we're not out of the woods yet. we have a lot more work to do. and we need to build on the momentum that is there to get more people back to work. when i travel around new hampshire, my constituents tell me that they're very frustrated with the gridlock in washington and what they want is for us to agree on a budget and to t
got me thinking about this issue. and i wanted to ask you what your opinion is on late john paul the second, because i think your take on the need for boys to have the same type of, just attention, maybe, and men even today. it is so important. and women have kind of taken it by storm and men are left standing there and they have natural desire in everything i am trying to reach on equal ground is kind of muddled up with the wonderful differences. and you really have to understand that there is something there and i was wondering if you have read about this, simplicity has made it not >> guest: you know, i haven't read it. you're not the first person that suggested that i do, so i will. especially if he is talking about the need to honor the soul of the boy and acknowledge his need, a kind of need of young men to be heroes and little boys casting themselves in these narratives and their imaginative play and i worry now we are not allowing them to do it, but now they are be ashamed being ashamed for that and they could pay a high price. >> host: we have an e-mail, my facts are fuz

to pay paul. moving forward, the republican majority wants to eliminate hundreds of thousand if not millions more students from the pell grant program. the republican passed budget will do exactly that by cutting $98 billion from that program alone. to be sure, students and families continue to struggle to afford the cost of a college degree. skyrocketing college costs in recent years have eroded the purchasing power of the pell grant. forcing pell grant recipients to increase. their reliance on student loans next year's maximum pell grant award of $5785 will cover a smaller share of college cost since the start of the program. it's troubling to me to know that pell grant recipients are already more than twice as likely as other students to have student loans. in closing i want to say that this congress is working to reauthorize the higher education act. i urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to value the pell grant program as a piece of the larger budget discussions and not limit themselves to solving short term funding problems with long lasting cuts to student aid
funding from private sources as well as government. i hope that that will be the case. also, paul mentioned the behaviors are area i have heard through independent sources that strenuous exercise and an antiviral anti-carcinogenic situation,. >> guest: let me answer some of that. there is some of that goes on, some of it goes on and it's a private foundation that raises funds on behalf of nih and there are many collaborative projects that are done with researchers and the foundation. i will also tell you that the nih works in partnership with many different private sector entities as well as other fundings near the country and around the world. and this is biomedical research where the nih plays this and we do this in a very close partnership with the private sector and our own foundation and other agencies in this country and elsewhere. the question that you ask about exercise and how that has been shown to have a result in the production of chemicals, absolutely. this is why your doctors and other health care professionals are saying that this is important for keeping your weigh
with that -- okay. >> what we were working within america, which is -- paul steiger has 15. extremely experienced in how to do this. >> did you document that? >> one story, a small number of documents. open knowledge, his name. >> just on names. >> why you didn't reject those names before sharing them with the new york times? >> there were 58,000 documents. >> in the public interest's defense, not journalism but to sort of those going through the foreshadowing, but there was -- >> there were conversations with the cabinet secretary which led me to think it was wise to share this material. >> the ceremony that took place in your basement when the secret service attended, how many was that? >> there were two from the cghq side and two or three from the guardian. >> you break out the hard disks? >> harder to break than you might think. >> and black and decker. >> was there any point in that exercise if you have the documents to punish them? >> the serious point is this. i was completely clear with the secretary that there were copies elsewhere and the destruction of these computers was not worth rep
but for the multiracial jury convicted twice. some of you may have heard of john paul. 1982 or december 1981 a police officer who was 25 years old at the time set have a tough situation get here quickly. his backup gets there two minutes later with a bullet in his back and another between his eyes. faulkner shot one ball is in the chest jamal was at his side and his bullets five were shot and two of them are in faulkner's body. there were four eyewitnesses at the scene. two were black and two were white and they all identified the man as the shooter. they went to trial multiracial jury convicted easily transparently guilty. he was sentenced to be executed of course, they protested the execution is then his very conviction now he was in the senate. you're probably see in those bumper stickers as well. and then he became a celebrity giving commencement addresses. he wrote books ever written about him and getting published everywhere then at the height of it npr science him to do a series of commentaries for all things considered at which point the philadelphia of patrolmen's benevolent association said
are not willing to do any tax hikes. and in this case, paul ryan -- the chairman of the house budget committee -- and patty murray -- the chairwoman of the senate budget committee -- basically decided, i think, that they weren't going to go after the sacred cows of the other party, and they were just going to try to get something that was possible. they decided after looking at all of these failed budget agreements in the past that, look, we're not even going to go there this time. we're going to go for something that's much smaller but doable. >> host: talking with ian swanson of "the hill." even if there's an agreement reached as early as this week, there'll still be a big budget debate early 2014. forecast for us what that'll look like. >> guest: sure. one thing this deal will not do is it will not raise the debt ceiling, and at some point next year they're going to have to do that. now, it's a little difficult to forecast exactly when that's going to be in part because the economy is starting to behave a little more strongly, and as a result, that kind of extends the period of time in whic
can do better than robbing peter to pay paul. the republican majority wants to eliminate hundreds of thousands if not millions more students from the program to program by cutting $98 billion by that program allowing. to be sure, students have continued to struggle to afford the cost of a college degree. skyrocketing college costs in recent years have eroded the purchasing power of the pell grant forcing the recipients to increase. the reliance on student loans. the maximum hellbent award of $5,785 will cover the smaller share of college cost in this part of the program. it's troubling today to note that program to recipients are already more than twice as likely as other students to have student loans. in closing i want to see that as the congress is working to reauthorize the higher education act, i urge my colleagues on both sides of the idol to value the program to program as a piece of the larger budget discussions and not to limit themselves to solving short-term funding problems with long-lasting cuts to student aid. with that i yield back. >> thank you mr. hinojosa. all su
that, i don't know about the other but it seems like bo cooper, former ins general counsel, paul virtue, former ins general counsel, these are general counsels of the ins, each of them established that the president of the does have prosecutorial discretion when he gets to decide who to prosecute and who not to. that is what he did. he sent children aside, said i'm not going to longer prosecute them because they do not present an imminent threat. guess what, mr. chairman? year-and-a-half later, 500,000 of them are walking around and i assure you, because i know the way this place works, if you could find one and bring them up here that sheets how he has caused some danger or some harm that person would have already have come but the fact is they're not. they're working in congressional offices. three are working in my congressional office, filling out forms. they're american citizens in everything but a piece of paper. all i want to do, and i want to establish because the chairman is absolutely correct. i'm going to say this for my point. when we were in charge in 2007 and 2008, we were
is being done in the medicare base already is a good idea. >> that republican paul ryan budget included provisions to repeal the affordable care act including the important reforms to medicare, the closing of the coverage gap known as the doughnut hole and preventive services that are such a great benefit to many of the neighbors and a wellness exams and important medicare fraud prevention provisions. do you support the repeal yes or no because my time has run out. >> just yes or no real quick because my time is up. >> yes or no. [laughter] >> of the reforms in medicare to include it in. >> there are parts that should be repealed. >> beneficiaries would be pretty upset if they were repealed. >> i think protections are important. they need to be continued and be in place. >> i would answer differently depending on the provision. >> the chair recognizes the gentleman and the chair emeritus for fiv five-minute. >> i arrived late and i didn't get to hear the testimony. >> the gentle lady from illinois for five minutes for a question. >> i just wanted to make the point is tha that i think th

between getting a job or not. and in detroit today, senator rand paul is introducing legislation to create what he calls freedom songs he said would keep money in the hands of text they are sent to the selected tree. senator powell's remarks came in a speech at the detroit economic club. >> today i'm here to introduce something that caught economic freedom songs. a bill introduced next week in washington. these freedom zones will dramatically reduce taxes and red tape so detroit businesses can grow and thrive. freedom zones are similar to an idea that kemp introduced a couple decades ago. template figure out ways to empower real people, regardless of race or family background. he called his plan a conservative war on poverty. it is time we revisit these ideas and expand upon them. i told somebody recently, mrs. jack kemp's enterprise on on steroids. the bill introduced will introduce the use and begin economic freedoms. this bill will lower personal and corporate income taxes in detroit to 5%. my bill also lower the payroll tax to present for the employees 2% for the employers. economic fr

and a totally legitimate reform. and i know that there've been bills introduced to that. senator rand paul and others. i think that is an excellent idea because it would bring some clarity to highlight as others suggested the bill ought to be read out loud on the house floor before they are voted on. the second suggestion i have come and again this is a radical one but one we ought to consider. at the last 40 years as we looked at the issue of money and politics the focus has always been largely restructuring behavior of american citizens, of donors and people outside of washington dc and that's really very unusual because think about this for a second. what you're talking about when people are making campaign donations especially voluntarily they like this candidate or this idea it is a first amendment issue as far as i'm concerned. people have the right to express the notion of who they support. there are very few restructurings on the conduct of politicians when it comes to raising money and that's not to say that all of them do so badly or do bad things but there are abuses that occur
candidate than a senator or somebody from congress, even though i'm a paul ryan fin. but the stench of dysfunction and obstructionism that emanates from washington right now is hard to disguise and shake off. you know, i think, i think chris christie's record in jeb's record would stand up to scrutiny from republican conservatives. they may not agree with all of it, but it's hard to argue that jeb bush did not govern as a conservative in his eight years in florida. once again, he didn't raise taxes once. so i think he would be a terrific candidate, and i think, i think he is seriously thinking about it. i think he is intrigued about. he's thinking about it. he's a very self disciplined guy. so i don't think you're going -- i don't think he is going to sears to think about it and make a decision until next year, next summer, maybe a little bit later than that. around next summer. i would love to see his voice in the debate, the part of it just because i think he brings so much to the table, and because he's not going to be afraid to say what he feels he needs to stay. -- >> we will l
